IT'S A SNARKLING CONTEST!
(Click image to enlarge)
Not here, over at Miss Snark's place.
Yours truly inspired a contest.
But y'gotta hurry because it's over 3:00pm EST TODAY!
In case you're new to Miss Snark, here's a bit of background:
1) Miss Snark is a literary agent who lives and works in the 212 area code of Manhattan. The 212 is important to New Yawkers ever since Manhattan had to establish another area code. Everyone wanted the coveted 212 for its prestige.
2) Miss Snark has a little dog named Killer Yapp, she adores George Clooney, and she drinks gin (from her gin pail).
The hilarious MS began blogging in June; readers of her blog are known as snarklings. Her priority is to educate writers on the business of writing and publishing while having fun along the way. Several months ago, there was a lot of speculation as to who Miss Snark really is. About that same time, the conversations on her blog included references to Seinfeld, which reminded me that Elaine Benes (Julia Dreyfus) worked in publishing -- as an editor, I think. So, I found an Entertainment Weekly with Julia on the cover and had some fun! The result is above on the left.
Since then, I've doctored other things, including the UK's Sun News (top right), which announced last month that George had gone loony. Shortly after that, I doctored an online article in which Clooney talks about the past year being the worst of his life. It's that article which is the basis of the contest.
The contest is fun AND Miss Snark is offering an actual PRIZE!
So hurry over to check out the SNARKLING CONTEST!
